On Sunday February 17th, 2013 at 3PM, The Miami Art Museum, MAM will present an artist talk with Warsaw-based celebrated artist Monika Sosnowska, one of the four renowned international artists that were commissioned to create work for the Museum’s reopening as Pérez Art Museum Miami, PAMM in December this year.
In her work, Sosnowska explores the politics and poetics of the built environment, engaging and transforming the architecture of the exhibition space, often in implausible ways. She is best known for large, site-specific sculptures made of industrial materials such as steel and concrete, as well as surreal, tableau-like installations. Last year, she was a finalist for the Guggenheim Hugo Boss Prize.
The artist talk will be moderated by MAM Associate Curator Rene Morales and will have as speaker Joanna Mytkowska, Director of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.
For the last 5 years, Mytkowska has held the post as director of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. She is a curator and art critic. Formerly she was a curator at the Centre Pompidou in Paris where she organized the exhibitions “Paweł Althamer” (2006), “The Magellanic Cloud” (2007), and “The Anxious” (2008).
